I found the recipe for Almond Scones Biscuits of The Healthy Chef.

I had two problems with the recipe, first that these were not really scones (they were more like biscuits) and the second was calorie content (211 calories and 18 gram of fat) was just not going to work for me. So, I adapted the recipe, which I have  provided below.

By the way, scones or not, they taste delicious.

I have also suggested alternates that you can use to further reduce calorie fat content. They reduce the calories by 20 calories and fat content by 2g.

Almond Vanilla Biscuits


3 cup almond meal/flour (finely grounded gives better texture for the scones)
2 tbsp almond oil
2 tbsp mashed avocado
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs beaten


Pre-heat your oven to 150 C.
Combine almond meal and baking powder.
Add the oil, honey, vanilla and egg.
Mix into a soft dough.
Dust your working surface with a little almond meal.
Place over the scone dough and flatten out to 1 cm thick.
Cut into rounds and place onto a baking tray.
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
Remove from the oven and cool.
Serve alone or with your choice of whole fruit jam.
